10 Types of People You’ll See on the Seawall

By Vancity Buzz

The Seawall is a great place for people watching—there’s no denying that. Sit back (off the path of course) relax, and enjoy our colourful city coming to life  on this gorgeous path.

  • The Lululemon Ambassador

    By Vancity Buzz

    You can always find hundreds of Lululemon Ambassadors (official and not) along the Seawall. Coupled with colourful running shoes, these people are keeping the athletic fashion industry alive.

  • The Intense Cyclist

    By Vancity Buzz

    A leisurely stroll often becomes getting stuck in the preliminaries for the Tour De France. Look out for those ringing their bells & saying "On Your Left" while wearing a spandex onesie.

  • The Photographer

    By Vancity Buzz

    Often seen with a camera around their neck, this typical Seawaller stops every 37 steps for another angle or the right lighting. Don’t ruin their perfect shot—or else.

  • The Slow Rider

    By Vancity Buzz

    We get it, you aren’t doing any time trials or breaking any records, but being in the bike lane, people expect you to move a little faster than the pedestrians. Beep beep!

  • The Bike Lane Walkers

    By Vancity Buzz

    You’re trying to get a nice ride in and somehow people miss all 700 signs that say which lane is which. It was even more confusing when the Vancouver Aquarium’s penguin lane was in action.

  • The Path Blockers

    By Vancity Buzz

    The Seawall is not that wide, especially with separate lanes for bikers & walkers. When people show up with 7 of their closest it’s more like a game of Red Rover than a jog.

  • The Impatient Runner

    By Vancity Buzz

    Often found disgruntled behind The Path Blockers, these active types don’t have any bells to get your attention…and you’re harshing their endorphin buzz, so kindly move right.

  • Bikers Going The Wrong Way

    By Vancity Buzz

    Was hundreds of people giving you the death glare not warning enough? You just had to try and go upstream? This is an easy way to upset all of the types of people on this list.

  • The Novice Rollerblader

    By Vancity Buzz

    Would you enter an Ironman after 1 week of running? Probably not. So maybe your first rollerblade sesh shouldn’t be on one of Vancouver’s most popular paths.

  • The High Heeled Tourist

    By Vancity Buzz

    Although we are not quite sure how they do it, many tourists conquer the seawall wearing high heels, keep on strutting…you’ve got 9km to go.
